More than likely the fuel check valve in the fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator is leaking allowing the fuel, that is supposed to stay in the fuel injector fuel rail for fast starts, is instead being allowed to drain back down into the gas tank.

Remember that having a different opinion doesn't also require one to be a jerk when expressing it.

When you have a choice, buy American.

mine sometimes is testy on start so i turn the power on 1st and let it sit for 20seconds in the on position (usually until the no seatbelt thing finishs dinging). Then i turn it on w/o and lights or electronics on and she starts up pretty easy.
